Pieces of Nordic Happiness

Hay | Benches

Hay is a Danish design company founded in 2002 and characterized by innovativeness, bold designs and high quality industrial manufacturing. Easily accessible to large audiences, Hay's furniture, lighting and interior products have become iconic pieces of modern Scandinavian design.

Behind Hay's ingenious and surprising designs lies an interesting way of thinking: the designers are given a full creative freedom to move forward the things that they like, as long as they follow Hay's main principles: architectonic, design and technological ambitions and sustainability. Hay collaborates with both well-known and fresh names of modern design. Some of its best known designers include Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and Hee Welling, whose designs include the popular chair collections About A Chair and Hee.

Elegant Scandinavian benches for every room and style

A bench is a great, multifunctional furniture piece that can function in a range of uses. Entryway benches and mudroom benches help you to dress your shoes and clothes, and storage benches and shoe storage benches are a great way to save space in the hallway. A dining bench or breakfast nook bench is an efficient space-saver in the kitchen or dining room, as you can easily squeeze in one more guest if needed. Besides seating, benches can also be used as low side tables for example in the living room or end of the bed. If you're looking for a bench suitable for outdoor use, take a look at our selection of outdoor chairs and benches.

Wood is the most traditional material of Scandinavian benches, and wooden benches haven't lost their popularity. Our selection is filled with many beautiful, handmade wooden benches in both rustic and modern style. We also have metal benches with references to industrial design, as well as benches combining wood and metal. The classic colours of Scandinavian benches include white, black and natural wood, but you can also add a pop of colour to your home with a yellow, red of blue bench. Most benches come without cushions, but seat cushions and decorative cushions are a great way to give a bit of softness to your bench.

Finnish Design Shop's handpicked selection features carefully crafted benches from the top of Scandinavian design, including the classic Aalto benches by Artek, wooden mid-century benches by FDB Møbler and modern, minimalist Scandinavian benches by Hay and Muuto. Whether you're looking for a dining bench, entryway bench, storage bench or end of bed bench, we've got what you need. Discover our selection and choose your favourite bench!
